, and before we knew that an ambassador had been killed and that romney was responding to a statement from a u.s. embassy who at the time was trying to quell protesters and it's a statement that the white house later backtracked from, as romney noted there, but clearly he decided politically, and he may have been right, it would have been worse for him to back down from the statement that he did overnight, that he had no choice but to, quote, unquote, double down with his criticism. and it sparks the debate on the management of the arab spring, which is the conversation to have about the relationship between the united states and egypt, and how much of an ally is egypt? he is drawing lines in the sand earlier than you would expect at a time like this when a challenger realizes he can't compete with the rose garden. >> take a look. >> i spoke out when the key fact that i referred to was known, which was that the embassy of the united states issued what appeared to be an apology for american principles. that was a mistake. i believe when a mistake is made of that significance, you speak out. >> ch

two u.s. marines. unlike previous attacks, this time the taliban says it was in response to the same anti-muslim film that set off a swell of violent protests in other parts of the region. libya, egypt, morocco, pakistan, algeria, kuwait, india, iraq just to name a few. in tunisia yesterday protesters breached the wall of the u.s. embassy where two people have died and 29 others have been hurt. in sudan, meanwhile, demonstrators got both the u.s. and german embassies and managed to set fire to the latter. a 14-minute video on youtube called "the innocence of muslims." nbc news has decided not to show any images from the film. the man behind the film, an egyptian born christian koptic was taken into custody earlier this morning and questioned by federal authorities reportedly about whether his involvement in this film may have violated terms of his probation. on thursday secretary of state tried to tamp down the religious outrage by denouncing the film. >> let me state very clearly, and i hope it is obvious, that the united states government had absolutely nothing to do with this vide

have? because he has been funneling money, new dollars, into the u.s. economy now for nearly four years to the tune of nearly $3 trillion. $3 trillion. the goal was to lower interest rates which would then spark lending, new businesses and hiring. but city today's job reports proves we have an uphill climb on the most important of those things, jobs. that 96,000 number was only part of the problem. june and july jobs numbers we also found out today were revised lower and the number today does not keep up with population growth. we need 125,000 jobs either single month just to keep pace with that. you have to have 125,000. and then more on top of that to make progress digging out of the holee've been in. and the other number, unemployment that fell at the rate from 8.3 to 8.1. sounds like good news but it's not. that's because 368,000 americans gave up looking for a job. so they no longer count. here's the number that matters. the share of the working age population, now actually working, is at its lowest level since 1981. so you may say, why did the stock market actually crawl higher to
. that has not been the message out of washington. this was the u.s. ambassador to the united nations, susan rice, on september 17th. >> the best information and the best assessment we have today is that in fact, this was not a preplanned, premeditated attack. >> not preplanned or premeditated. white house spokesman jay carney reiterated that position yesterday. >> based on the information we had at the time and had to this day, we do not have evidence it was premeditated. >> but today, carney for the first time called it a terrorist attack and changed his wording, i quote him, we have no information at this point to suggest this is a csignificantl preplanned attack. a u.s. official who did not want to be named tells cnn today, we acknowledge contradictory major and there are questions about whether the u.s. missed very important warning signs. arwa damon on the ground. you have hear her on this show, has reported that according to libyan military officials, three days before the attacks took place, the libyan military officials had a meeting with senior employees at the embassy in tripoli a

. and it is beyond cairo tonight. anti-u.s. demonstrators clashed in front of u.s. embassies, in israel, sudan, iraq, iran and among muslims in kashmir. there's a call in iran for nationwide rallies tomorrow. it appears to be a backlash at least in part from a low budget anti-islamic film which was made in the united states, first posted on youtube in july and recently publicized in the middle east. here's what we're also learning tonight. federal officials say the filmmaker's name is nakoula basseley nakoula. that name is very important and much more and why it matters so much later. but the group loosely affiliated with al qaeda in libya that has been accused of playing a role in tuesday's deadly attack on the american consulate in benghazi has just issued a statement denying responsibility. it's an important thing to say given that they have quickly claimed responsibility for other attacks, including on american interests and on the red cross. libyan prime minister tells cnn at least one person has been arrested in conjunction with the killings of the american ambassador chris steven's and three

of the u.s. embassy for a long time now and they were the core group that went out yesterday organized this demonstration and then the demonstration got out of hand, so to speak, and some of the people climbed into the embassy itself, didn't attack anyone, but pulled down an american flag and put up a black islamic flag. no u.s. personnel were at risk in that incident, but what it did show is a glaring lack of response from the new islamic leaning egyptian government. what happened in benghazi was a very different kind of attack. this was a commando raid according to accounts by the libyan -- by various libyan security officials including ones we've spoken to who describe commandos, militants, showing up, attacking with rpgs, with military-style formation, at least two phases of the attack. it's a different kind of thing. i'm not saying that they -- both were inspired we are told, by this internet video, but one was a popular feeling and agitation in which people climbed over a wall and pulled down a flag, the other was a -- looks more like an al qaeda-style raid on a consulate that en
